1854 printing of 1853 copyrighted text (A new edition revised and corrected). The author is credited as a Doctor of Divinity and as the author of the series of grammars, English, Latin, and Greek, on the same plan. Designed as a small work on Grammar, suited for children younger than the usual age for grammar instruction (up to twelve or fourteen). Four sections: orthography, etymology, syntax and prosody. Each lesson has the following order: definitions and rules to be memorized (in large type), subordinate matter to be studied (in small type), a series of questions on the preceding, and practical exercises. Principles of grammar are connected to principles in composition in each lesson. Some illustrations appear in the etymology section. Very similar to Bullions's School Grammar, although it contains roughly thirty fewer pages than that later text. Schultz Archive copy is roughly the complete text.
